“Sagittarians love to connect to and understand the world at large. Whether their travels to a spa take them across the globe or across town, they want to feel as if they are in another destination entirely. Therefore, treatments like the Java Lulur or Shirodhara, which offer the flavor of exotic lands, will intrigue and satisfy the Archer’s quest-seeking nature. With their sign ruling the liver, Sagittarians should opt for services that promote detoxification—herbal wraps, mud treatments, and others—and bodywork that focuses on the lower back and thighs, areas in which they carry a lot of tension.—Stephanie Gailing
